Who we are
Our first commission was for Stuart Craig on Hugh Hudson’s Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes in 1984, when Filmscapes founder and director Ron Whittle was asked to create ‘living’ sets.
Our full time core team are supplemented by a tried and tested group of specialists who regularly work with us – from turf laying, tree felling and reconstruction, to hard landscaping and prefabrication.
We are not phased by fluctuating demands – we build the right team, with the right skills to do the job. We have managed teams of up to 25, and for the London 2012 opening ceremony, our team leaders managed hoards of eager volunteers too!
We set rigorous standards of behaviour and health and safety, ensuring both our directly employed team and our sub contractors work within our guidelines.
We travel and work on locations, understanding the demands of delivering on time and within budget and the need to get the job done quickly and efficiently.
We’re inventive and tenacious, always looking at how we can deliver the vision. This sometimes leads to extraordinary circumstances – like the occasion we used a landing craft to deliver turf to an inaccessible beach; or when we recreated every blade of grass and weed to replicate a painting (counting them as we went); or prefabricating complex decking shapes prior to building an exhibition garden for Diarmuid Gavin.
The truth is, these are the challenges we enjoy and thrive on.
